'Sunderland consider move' for Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck
Have lost patience with Liverpool over Fabio Borini deal - reports
Wednesday 20 August 2014
Sunderland have reportedly turned their attentions to Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck.
Gus Poyet is believed to have grown frustrated with the delay over Liverpool striker Fabio Borini, who enjoyed a successful spell on loan at the Stadium of Light last season.
Sunderland have now 'expressed an interest' for the 23-year-old striker, according to the Daily Mail.
Welbeck has already been the subject of a £12m bid from Hull City but will seek assurances about his role under Louis van Gaal before making a decision on his future.
Liverpool accepted a £14m offer from Sunderland for Borini, but the Italian striker is yet to make up his mind on where his future lies.
Welbeck is currently out with a knee injury and it is not yet known when he will return

He was part of Roy Hodgson's England squad at the World Cup, starting in the defeat against Uruguay and the draw with Costa Rica.
